Ocean Technologies NI’s first Sapphire Affiliate Member
(Posted on 16/10/20)
In a move to support the commitment of The Nautical Institute’s work to promote professionalism, best practice and safety throughout the maritime industry, Ocean Technologies Group has agreed to be the Institute’s first Sapphire Affiliate member.
Central to this partnership is supporting the Institute’s Mariners’ Alerting and Reporting Scheme (MARS), a searchable online database of maritime accidents and near misses covering 25 years, available free to the industry.
This collaboration comes shortly after a very special milestone was reached by The Navigator, a free magazine published by The Nautical Institute for maritime navigators around the world, which celebrated its 25th edition recently. As the first Sapphire Affiliate member, Ocean Technologies Group will be recognised as a supporting organisation of this award-winning publication.
Through its learning brands Seagull, Videotel, Marlins and MTS, Ocean Technologies Group champions seafarer safety with a comprehensive library of maritime e-learning and boasts an unrivalled network of over 1,400 customers, 20,000 vessels and over 1,000,000 seafarers.
“We have enjoyed a great working relationship with The Nautical Institute over many years using its members’ expertise and knowledge to help us design and develop our training solutions. We passionately believe in the professional development of seafarers and so it was a natural progression for us to help support the Institute’s work by becoming the first Sapphire Affiliate member,” said Raal Harris, Creative Director of the Ocean Technologies Group.
“We are really pleased to welcome Ocean Technologies Group as our first Sapphire Affiliate member and having their support and appreciation for the work we do to promote best working practices in the maritime industry, will greatly benefit our membership,” said Captain John Lloyd, CEO of The Nautical Institute.
